HALF A CHANCE (hafchans.wad)
Description
I hate unfair death match levels. You know them- one player gets a heavy advantage early in the match, blows away the opposition and remains invincible for the rest of the match. Boring... even when it's you. HALF A CHANCE provides limited ammo, medicals and only offers the standard armour. Weapons are available but you'll expose yourself to fire and/or have to take damage to get them. The only powerup is the shadow sphere. Any advantages a player gains are temporary and there will be a price to pay. This is a small level. It offers plenty of cover and invisible sniping locations but you won't waste a lot of time finding your opponent(s). If you like monsters, a few imps will keep you alert. If you prefer humans only, use the -nomonsters parameter when loading Doom. Skill levels are not implemented. Instead, they are used to vary the weapons. In Doom, levels 1 and 2 provide the shotgun and machine gun. Level 3 trades the rocket launcher for the machine gun. Levels 4 and 5 offer the shotgun and plasma rifle. Doom II gives level 1 and 2 players both shotguns. Level 3 drops the super shotgun but brings in the machine gun. Levels 4 and 5 arm you with shotgun and rocket launcher. In multiplayer mode the exit is cooperative; the single player exit is blocked off. One player will have to throw a switch to make a distant actual exit switch available for a second player. It is intended that deathmatch play use -altdeath version 2 rules. A batch file is included to respawn monsters and items for single player practice.

Description             : I hate unfair death match levels. You know them- 
  one player gets a heavy advantage early in the
  match, blows away the opposition and remains
  invincible for the rest of the match. Boring...
  even when it's you.

  HALF A CHANCE provides limited ammo, medicals
  and only offers the standard armour. Weapons are
  available but you'll expose yourself to fire
  and/or have to take damage to get them. The
  only powerup is the shadow sphere. Any advantages
  a player gains are temporary and there will
  be a price to pay. This is a small level. It
  offers plenty of cover and invisible sniping
  locations but you won't waste a lot of time
  finding your opponent(s).

  If you like monsters, a few imps will keep you
  alert. If you prefer humans only, use the
  -nomonsters parameter when loading Doom.

  Skill levels are not implemented. Instead,
  they are used to vary the weapons. In Doom,
  levels 1 and 2 provide the shotgun and 
  machine gun. Level 3 trades the rocket launcher
  for the machine gun. Levels 4 and 5 offer the
  shotgun and plasma rifle.

  Doom II gives level 1 and 2 players both
  shotguns. Level 3 drops the super shotgun but
  brings in the machine gun. Levels 4 and 5 arm
  you with shotgun and rocket launcher.

  In multiplayer mode the exit is cooperative;
  the single player exit is blocked off.
  One player will have to throw a switch to make
  a distant actual exit switch available for a
  second player.

  It is intended that deathmatch play use
  -altdeath version 2 rules. A batch file is
  included to respawn monsters and items for
  single player practice.
